Cabinet approves Ladli Behna Yojana


Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that the cabinet approved the Mukhyamantri Ladli Behna Yojana which will empower women at every level. A virtual meeting of the Council of Ministers was organised under the chairmanship of CM Chouhan at CM’s residence office in the state capital Bhopal on Saturday.
The Yojana will be launched on March 5. The applications will be filled from March 15.
The applications are very simple and the sisters will not have to go anywhere for that. The team will visit to fill the application in their village itself. Apart from the administrative officer, social workers will also be present for assistance in it, the chief minister said, adding that the task of filling the application will be completed in March and April. After that they will be scrutinized in May.
This Yojana is for families with an annual income of up to Rs 2.5 lakh. Family means husband and wife and their children. The money will be deposited in the bank account of women, Chouhan said, adding that those families who have less than five acres of agricultural land will also be eligible for this scheme.
The money will be deposited in the account from June 10 and the money will be added every month on the same date, the Chief Minister added.
